La Vegetariana Loca

Here are some random ramblings of a girl that will probably end up in an insane asylum sometime in her near future...Kookookachoo. She loves her Queen, she loves her Beatles and her Who and her Zeppy and her music in general. She loves her writing. She loves love. And she loves you. Yeah. Yeah. Yeah.

Robert Plant, Alison Krauss
So. Aunt's house. We got there I guess about ten days ago (I'm home now). I rode in my nana's Mercury in the backseat listening to Led Zeppelin and sleeping the whole way. My mom and nana talked. The norm.

We got there. Big labrador (correction: HUGE) greeted us.

We went swimming a lot. I went shopping...XD We even went to my aunt's country club. SEVERAL TIMES. I gotta tell you: I'm realizing more and more when I hang around people like that how truly country in the Southern sense of the word I am: I WAS NOT IN MY ELEMENT. But it was fun. Saw a HUGE 4th of July fireworks display.

Um...Morgan, one of my cousins, came up. I introduced her to my kind of music. She's in love with Roger Daltrey now.XD

Spent the night at my cousin Kristin's house with her four kids and husband. Was CHAOS, but it was alright, all in all.

I went to go see Get Smart. It was so funny. Go see it: I command thee.

I gorged myself on Indian food, went to the Columbia Zoo, saw Bend It Like Beckham and The Green Mile and Across the Universe on my aunt's huge TV, went walking a lot, missed my boyfriend, and so forth.

But the best part?


First off, there was a bit of a mix-up with the tickets. My mom had bought tickets for me to see Robert Plant and Alison Krauss in Atlanta on Friday. Trouble is, they weren't in Atlanta on Friday. They were in Raleigh. North Carolina.

By a fluke, my aunt got directions to the Atlanta venue while we were still near Charlotte, NC (where she lives). Thank GOD. If she hadn't, we would have gotten to Georgia and realized: CRAP, they're not here.

So, instead she looked up the venue while we were in Charlotte. Turned out it was in Raleigh. I'm still asleep while this is going on. Finally, she comes upstairs and says, "I've got to tell you something." I rolled over and mumbled something. Then, she said, "We're not going to Atlanta to see the concert."

I bolted up. "WHAT?!"

I nearly started crying.XD

Then she explained the whole Raleigh thing. So we drove to Raleigh: this pushed us a day late on our return journey to Georgia thingy. But who cares?XD

We drove for three and a half hours-ish both ways.

BUT THE CONCERT!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Started out with Rich Woman. I'm serious, I wish I could describe it in words, but it rendered me illiterate. There were times where I was screaming myself hoarse, there were times where I was dancing in my seat, and there were times where I was completely dizzy. I was struck dumb during Black Dog: all I could do was sit and stare, open mouthed. They did three Zep songs: Black Dog, Black Country Woman, and The Battle of Evermore (my favorite). They did In the Mood along with Mattie Groves, which was amazing. Also when Alison did Let's Go Down to the River or whatever it's called alone with just a wee bit of harmony...O_O

They came out for an encore even. ^_^ And when they did Gone Gone Gone...XD Maroon curtain dropped to show the glittery thing from the video.

And they are together. At least, I think they are. They are so cute...Even on stage, when they weren't posing for pictures, she would look at him and kiss him on the cheek or he would do something that would make her smile. Even when they went off in the corner and let T Bone take over and there were no lights on them, they were whispering in each other's ears (Robert had to move his hair back to hear. XD Adorable.) and occasionally touching each other's knees.

But the best part? The part that makes me feel like jelly?


XD Fan girl in me is still freaking out.

I shall tell ze story: I was standing there, clapping and being excitable and all that. He was looking up in our section, and I was looking at him. Finally, it seemed like he looked at me. I don't know: he may have been looking at the crazy drunk lady a little bit away from me, but the more I think about it, the less I think that was the case (she was over too far for it to have been her). And he kept looking. I didn't move: I was just staring back. I feel kind of embarrassed about that now...XD I may have smiled a little: I kept breaking out into these loony smiles through the whole concert. Finally, he looked away. A bit later, he went up to Alison and whispered something in her ear, gesturing up towards my section of seats.

I was the craziest person in the section save for the drunk lady. Every body else was, pretty much, vegetative, old fart hippies. And I was definitely the craziest young person there...XD

So...maybe he didn't look at me exactly, but hey! A girl can dream.

Time of my life!
